Now when Jesus heard this, He marveled and said to those who were following, “Truly I say to you, I have not found such great faith with anyone in Israel.
Matthew 8:10 NASB
It took a Roman Centurion to blow Jesus away when it came to responding and operating in faith in all of Israel.
In Israel, where they worshipped the One True God, where they had religious zealots and great Scripture teachers!
Why did Jesus say and think this? Because the centurion understood authority. He recognized Jesus as someone with great authority, spiritual authority. And that authority wasn’t dependent on location to operate and be effective.
Your faith should be just as powerful and great as the centurion. Asking Jesus where you are, to move in the life of someone that needs a healing, wisdom, help, you name it, should never be a second thought. He is able to deliver from afar!
Develop your faith, understanding that there is no limit to His reach. Believe that it will be done because He is in control and more powerful than anything. Believe because His authority is supreme over all.
Lord, help us to have faith. You said if we had faith the size of a mustard seed… We know that our prayers don’t get answered because of our own power, but Yours. We trust and obey You.
